Legacy Fighting Alliance crowns their first ever Heavyweight champion tonight, LIVE on AXS TV!
In the main event, Richard “The Black Eagle” Odoms (12-3) and Jared “The Mountain” Vanderaa (5-0) are set to showdown for the inaugural LFA Heavyweight championship. Vanderaa is a Legacy Fighting Alliance newcomer who trains with Dan Henderson and has finished all five of his opponents. Odoms is coming off of a brutal TKO victory back at LFA 6 and has an impressive record, with five of his wins coming by way of KO/TKO. Make sure to keep your eyes glued to the screen during this one!
In the co-main event, the Middleweights are up to bat as Chris Harris (8-1) & Cortez “The Crazy Cowboy” Coleman (13-7) make their LFA debuts. Harris has a total of five first round finishes and has previously made three appearances with Bellator where he went 2-1. Coleman is coming off of a loss to Rafael Lovato Jr. back at Legacy FC 62, but 8 of his 13 victories have come by way of a finish. Both men will be looking to make their way back into the winner’s circle, so watch for a finish in this one!
